Brilliant pictures!

I especially enjoy the fact that on some of those pics it shows the true colour of the Victory without sunlight lightening the yellow ochre on the hull. It looks exactly like the Jokita paint I was initially worried about, which has finally put my mind at ease. :)

Looking forward to the next round of pictures! This is the closest I can ever get to her being in Australia. :)
